An episode of the ABC-TV sitcom "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet". This episode contains some original commercials and a rebuttle to "Rockchester - City of Quality" (I'm only half-joking about the second part). In this episode, Ozzie, Harriet and the parents of David's girlfriend all assume the two are about to get engaged. Cast includes: Ozzie Nelson, Harriet Nelson, David Nelson, Ricky Nelson, John Hubbard, Lucy Prentis, Skip Young, Judi Sherven, and Lyle Talbot.

Will the real June please stand up..
I see this isn't the real Mrs. June Nelson as played in later episodes.
Were David and June Blair already married, thus giving the character the name June in preparations for the real June to play her later?
So many questions! :)

In this semi-complete episode (28 minutes), we see some very good comedy. Despite the episode title, Ozzie is the main character in this episode. He and David's Girlfriend's father can't seem to agree on anything (we also learn that Ozzie doesn't like the designs of some of the modern new schools). Wait until they find out who Ricky is taking out on a date! Interesting to see outdoor filming in a early 1960's sitcom episode (indeed, this series featured outdoor filming pretty early on).
We also see a Coca-Cola commercial feauring a catchy single, a clever bit of product placement (something not that common at the time), a brief appearance by the ever-popular Lyle Talbot, Ozzie getting splashed with mud, a fun Eastman Kodak commercial, a very short 2nd Coca-Cola commercial, a religious PSA, and that ever-popular ABC-TV ID.
Directed by Ozzie Nelson
Screenplay by Jay Sommers, Dick Bensfield, Perry Grant, Don Nelson and Ozzie Nelson (really? it took 5 people to write this episode? Don't get me wrong, it's very good and entertaining, but five whole writers for a 25 minute sitcom episode?)
Producer: Ozzie Nelson.
Personally, I probably would of enjoyed the episode even more had it featured a card-game playing teenager saving the world from some guy in a blue suit, but nevertheless, it's very pleasant early 1960's Americana.
